Next week, from December 7th through the 8th, SmartBear will be headed to Bangalore, India, to attend STC 2017! Organized by Quality Assurance International (QAI), the Software Testing Conferences (STC) have been a hub for software professionals to network, discuss the latest opportunities and challenges in the field, and exchange innovative ideas to advance both the industry and their careers.
This year’s theme focuses on what it means to test in the age of digital convergence and disruption. We’re excited to join the hundreds of other testers and developers as they explore how to build quality software in this digital age through discussions on agile methods like, “Data Validation Framework in a Modern Era’s Challenging Business Environment,” or emerging trends like, “What’s Our Job When the Machine Does Testing?”
SmartBear’s own David Parker, Director of Global Alliances, will be giving a keynote speech titled, “Continuous Integration: Leverage CI to Guarantee API Quality.”
The explosion of API usage in recent years has forced companies, from startups to global enterprises, to focus on investing in API quality and performance. APIs are the links that connect the vast Internet of Things (IoT) and are the reason software such as Uber or AirBnB are possible – making their strength a competitive advantage and vital to the success of software companies today.
Ensuring high performing APIs is no small feat and according to a report released by the research firm MarketsandMarkets, the API testing market is expected to grow from USD 447.7 million in 2017 to USD 1,0991.1 million by 2022. Continuous Integration (CI) enables development and testing teams to deliver higher quality APIs in a shorter amount of time, meaning the practice is crucial for teams looking to meet and beat market demand.
Join David Parker on Thursday, December 7th, at 10:45 am as he discusses:
- API testing in the software delivery pipeline
- Challenges with implementing CI for APIs
- How to tie API testing into Jenkins
- Three CI use cases with technical demonstrations
